Inspired By Stamping August Release - Guitars & Background Basics Lines

Howdy and welcome to Day Two of our August Release Sneak Peeks at Inspired By Stamping!  This month, IBS is paying homage to the men in our life:  husbands, fathers, sons, grandpas, uncles, cousins...they've covered 'em all!

The sets we're featuring today are Guitars and Background Basics Lines.  These two are super flexible, and I will be reaching for these sets to make cards both masculine AND feminine.  (pardon the lighting on some of these pics.  I had to photograph the card on my bed one day :( and rely upon daylight)


Isn't this guitar FUN?  There are two guitars in the set, along with some picks and these FABULOUS splatters.  I added some glossy glue to parts of the guitar, as seen best below.  The splashes are a new 'Colleen Favorite' for grunging and distressing a card.  ;-)


The skinny stripes from BBL looked just like guitar frets to me, so I embossed them in gold.  The sentiment is from Masculine Tags, a set that's being released this week, too.

A fun card and I think it is great that you got such a great picture taking it on your bed! If I took a picture on my bed, it would look so bad you can't believe it! You are so good at taking pictures!

This guitar could be used so many ways and I love that you did it with the lines that kind of mirror the strings in it - fab idea. Hugz!
